Meet the Missing Links

Creationists often complain about the lack of transitional fossils. They claim that evolution has been disproven because we haven't found the fossils that would verify the theory. Blah, blah, blah. Well, since I'm so sick of hearing it... and since Ben Stein's IDiotic movie will be coming out soon, I thought I would compile some of my favorite youtube videos laying out the fossil record. Some are more science intensive than others, and there is some overlap between them. And, of course, there is no way the whole fossil record could be documented by a couple of youtube videos (as a matter of fact, I'm missing early mammal to our primate ancestors in this video compilation). But have fun... you're guaranteed to learn something watching these!

We have the fossils. We win!

In the beginning....

And then the earth was peopled with fish and reptiles and mammals and the great whale...



But where did we come from? Glad you asked....



Many thanks to somecomputergeek, KennyTew2 and DonExodus2 for these awesome videos!

From early mammals to primates. That is quite a span to be missing, don't you think.

Yeah. But I'm missing them. Science isn't.
